Data Shows a Few States Dominate US EV Adoption

America’s electric vehicle industry is still in its infancy. Electric cars still make up a small percentage of total vehicle sales in the country, and most experts agree that it will take some time before there are enough EVs on the road to offset carbon emissions from internal combustion engine (ICE) cars. This is primarily because electric vehicles are too expensive for the average consumer and the country’s public charging network still needs a lot of work. Furthermore, EV adoption has mainly been limited to a handful of states that have decent EV charging networks and have provided buyers with…

Recycling Programs Stay on Ice as EV Batteries Outlast Predictions

As more territories pledge to transition their road transport systems to electric vehicles and automakers invest billions of dollars into developing new EVs, one question has been on many people’s minds. What will we do with all these electric vehicle batteries when they reach the end of their lives? The answer has been recycling programs that could recover up to 90% of an EV battery cell for commercial activity once its life on the road was over. However, a recent report from Forbes has revealed that EV batteries are so long-lasting that they are delaying battery recycling programs. The idea…

CNN Road Trip Shows Charging Infrastructure, Not Range Is Major Constraint to EV Adoption

A reporter from CNN recently went on an EV road trip, which proved that insufficient charging infrastructure rather than small EV batteries and range anxiety is a major barrier to electric vehicle adoption. After traveling 950 miles across several states in an EV, the CNN reporter concluded that developing a network of convenient and reliable charging stations is the solution, rather than developing EVs with larger battery packs and more range. Peter Valdes-Dapena drove a Mercedes-Benz EQS 450+ from New York City to Atlanta, covering around 950 miles. Although the EQS has an estimated range of 350 miles on a…

Proposed Law Seeks to Remove EV Tax Credit Limit on Manufacturers

Electric vehicles are too expensive for most consumers to purchase outright. As such, the U.S. government provided subsidies to EV buyers to make them more affordable and increase EV adoption. More specifically, EV buyers were eligible for up to $7,500 in incentives. After each automaker sold 200,000 vehicles with the incentives, subsequent units would not be eligible for the assistance. The automotive industry has asked the government to remove the 200,000 EV cap because it has the potential to significantly hinder EV adoption. Democrats have now introduced legislation to eliminate the cap on EV incentives and extend the incentives through…

Average EV Prices Cross $66,000 in America as Electrification Challenges Escalate

Electric vehicles have always been expensive. The first Tesla Roadster cost more than $100,000, and more than a decade later, the average electric vehicle is still more expensive than a comparable gasoline-powered car. Experts predicted that EV prices would reduce over the next few years as production costs came down, with EVs eventually becoming as affordable as internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. However, average electric vehicle prices have actually increased in the past year, going up by more than 14% year-over-year to $66,000 in June. As electric vehicles were already out of reach for most consumers, even with available state…

New Jersey to Fork Out Millions to Boost Switch to EVs

The race to electrify the road transport network is on. The Biden administration has provided $5 billion for the development of a nationwide network of public electric vehicle chargers, and automakers have pledged to spend billions of dollars developing new electric vehicle models over the next decade. However, the high prices of most EV models prevent a significant portion of the population from ditching their internal combustion engine (ICE) cars and going electric. To help offset these costs and reduce the financial burden on buyers, the state of New Jersey will provide millions of dollars in financial incentives to EV…
